Six Ingredients for the New Bride (or tired mom):

My family is not loving  regular pesto made with basil, so I decided to try this recipe by Giada.

Kids and adults loved it this past Shabbat lunch, including my one year old nephew,  who literally – practically,  devoured his plate.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto by Giada De Laurentiis

  • 12 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 (8.5-ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves OR 1/4 cup of prepared basil pesto
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • toasted pine nuts (optional)

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2  cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, blend the sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, garlic, salt and pepper,pine nuts(optional) to taste, and basil  or pre-made pesto in a food processor and blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Transfer the tomato mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the Parmesan, or omit to make it pareve.

Add the pasta to the pesto and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve with toasted pine nuts on top.
